OT: Another Roy in making ?

Esche has given up 9 goals on 29 shots...he is still in the net.

Holy crap you're right. How embarassing for both Esche and Hitchcock. Good way to send a message that you don't care about your players.

He's still in net only because Hitchcock is pissed off at his pre-game comment.

What did he say before the game?

Forget it, Pednault just told it.

Esche had an assist, though!

Esche > Forsberg

What do you think? Esche + Richards for Aebischer + Perezhogin + prospect? Doesn't have to be Richards, is Umberger worth more/less? I was thinking it'd be a way to improve depth down the middle, so we'd probably need to dump a winger.

Nit has a busted hip so there was no point putting him in. Also Hesche passed some odd comments on the coach...so yeah....just stay in the nets.
Anyway he's the backup so there is no "Roy in the making" here.

I just wish Esche to be the farthest away from Montreal possible, he's probably pissed off because he's not the starter and want to be traded.

Esche is out of there. Hitch just signed an extension and Esche has problems stopping beach balls. They will trade him away and go get another keeper. I can't believe how bad Philly suck at this point. They basically have the same core than last year don't they ? And they did pretty well with it in the regular season, before getting their tails handed to them by Buffalo in the playoffs ... Man Lindy's squad really got their number

There is a little difference between Roy and Esche. One was a head case with Stanley Cups, the other just a head case.

Except that in the offseason, other teams got faster. Whereas the Flyers just got older and slower.

Esche'll get traded for sure and I sure hope he winds up somewhere in our division

That was an ugly game. I'm expecting Clarke to make a move soon. It's still Hitchcock's team, so the players will be accountable. I was wondering whether Forsberg might come up in trade talks. Already there's scrutiny on him for not stepping up more as captain, and he's UFA after this season. Obviously it's pure speculation, but Clarke is a fearless trader who won't watch his team swirl around the bowl for long.

At least Esche has the balls to be a man about it. Any habs fan that was at the Forum that night knows how I feel about Roy. Great goalie but a little sissy. He embarassed himself that night more with his attutude then his perfomance.

As for Mike Richards, he has been overhyped. I used to work with his aunt and during the lockout she was worried about the hype he was getting knowing he would not be able to live up to it. Poor guy. He is a Mike Johnson type player at his best. Dont expect more.

I want him close to Montreal. Somewhere like Ottawa, or Boston, maybe...
